There is almost nothing better than an exiting conversation between two great friends. I recently had a wonderful conversation with my father, we were together about two hours and the time just passed as we discussed politics, religion, sports, and the economy. It was great to talk with each other, not asking for anything not needing anything just talking. After we parted I continued to reflect on how many time we talk to our loved ones and friends having great conversations just like the one I had with my father new and interesting, exiting conversations. Then I began to think of how prayer to God is just that - a conversation. The problem is many of us always have the same one sided conversation with God our Father every time we pray. I wonder how many of us would keep our friends around if every time we talked it was for just five minutes and they did all of the talking asking for the same list of things daily? Chances are we would not like to talk to them and probably would terminate our friendship.
Friends what I am getting at is when we pray and have conversations with God they should be as fresh, exciting and new as the ones we have with our friends and family. God wants to be an intimate part of our life- let's have the wisdom to let God in. Today start having some EXITING CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD!
1 Wisdom has built her house;
she has carved its seven columns.
2 She has prepared a great banquet,
mixed the wines, and set the table.
3 She has sent her servants to invite everyone to come.
She calls out from the heights overlooking the city.
4 “Come in with me,” she urges the simple.
To those who lack good judgment, she says,
5 “Come, eat my food,
and drink the wine I have mixed.
6 Leave your simple ways behind, and begin to live;
learn to use good judgment.”
7 Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return.
Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt.
8 So don’t bother correcting mockers;
they will only hate you.
But correct the wise,
and they will love you.
9 Instruct the wise,
and they will be even wiser.
Teach the righteous,
and they will learn even more.
Be Well, P.J.
